Best Friend in the Whole World
Roland lives by himself out in the woods. He has plenty of things he enjoys — music and drawing and drinking his tea. But when one lives all alone, sometimes he will be lonely, and that is true for Roland. He often takes walks in the woods and hopes to find a friend. One day he finds a friend and names him Milton. Milton seems to like all the very same things that Roland likes. They are happy. As they go on a walk in the woods together one day, they see a poster saying that Popkin is missing, and Popkin looks very much like Milton. Roland is sure it can’t be Milton, but after reading all the signs, he realizes Milton really might be the missing Popkin. What to do, what to do?

There are lovely, important lessons woven into this story, but little ones will be so charmed by the gorgeous illustrations filled with sweet details and the captivating text, they will never guess they are learning a lesson. They will just ask to have this book read again and again.
